About Charlize Theron (1975 –)

Charlize Theron was born in a little farming village, Benoni, in South Africa. She was the daughter of Frenchman Charles Theron and German mother, Gerda – though both of her parents were born and raised in South Africa. She grew up on a farm. Her biggest passions in childhood were dance and ballet. Unfortunately, her father, Charles, had a drinking problem and turned into a raging drunk one day, and attacked her mother. Gerda was forced to shoot Charles with a gun, when Charlize was 15 years old. It was ruled a self-defense killing.

At 16 years, Charlize Theron won a modeling contest and tried modeling in Europe. She went to New York a year later, but decided to go back to her first love, dancing. Charlize Theron danced with the Joffrey Ballet in such performances of "The Swan Lake" and "The Nutcracker Suite". During this time she injured her knee, which ended her dancing career.

However, when one door closed, another one opened up. Charlize Theron went back home to South Africa, but not for long. Her mother bought her a one-way ticket to Los Angeles, in 1994, so that Charlize could find a career for herself in the film industry as an actress.

After a frustrating day of being turned down by Hollywood agents, Charlize Theron went to the bank to cash a check her mother had sent her. When told that the bank wouldn't cash an out-of-state check, Charlize showcased some of that Theron temper and gift of gab, providing all present a free, impromptu, riveting performance. An agent standing in line was so impressed he gave her his card, offering to be Charlize's agent if she learned English.

Two years later, Charlize began her film career in her first speaking role, 2 DAYS IN THE VALLEY, which got her the role in THAT THING YOU DO! Other films were to follow. For her role in MONSTER, she gained 30 pounds. Just nine years after coming to Hollywood, Charlize Theron earned a Best Actress Oscar.
